18: “寂寞奏嗚曲” (Lonely Sonata): best Eason song to get me through unpleasant chores

1

I’ve said before that Eason’s Black, White, Gray album is his “best”, probably because of this song, 寂寞奏嗚曲 (Lonely Sonata). It was nice to hear that it’s also Eason’s favorite song on that album 😀

The reason I’ve chosen it as my chore song is that the pace of its melody and lovely chorus lend themselves to swaying. Yes, swaying. I can stand there up to my elbows in dish bubbles, and reluctantly I am comforted into not hating what I’m doing. If nobody is around I can even be persuaded to belt out the chorus. It’s sweet, wistful, sad without being depressing. An “I will always love you” sort of song.

原來愛上寂寞
會怕去愛
害怕走
卻得往前走
已經忘了很久
每個鏡頭
那時候的我

How I love this song.
